Sprint Nextel has exclusive U.S. rights to sell Palm's hotly anticipated Pre phone through the end of 2009, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday. Sprint, which also reported a narrower-than-expected quarterly loss on Thursday, saw its shares rise leap more than 25 percent in early afternoon trade. [...]
Neither Sprint nor Palm have not announced how long the exclusivity period would last for the touchscreen phone, due to go on sale in the first half of the year.
